I remember the college fairs during high school that teachers would hype during my senior year. Teachers and counselors explained that it was important to go to college right after high school, as to not get too lazy or lose the information that we had learned in school. The college fairs would usually be in the high school gym, with hordes of students moving around in a circle visiting each table set up, each manned by one or two admission representatives. Some of the colleges were close and affordable while others were expensive, out of state, or both. I knew, however, that no matter which college I ended up picking, I still had no clue what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.
